Tools, Cooked ingredients & Fruits : It’s Deco Time!!✮✮
Dry Butter Chicken
Cut up fruits (Kiwi/Dragon Fruit)
Slice of carrot
Nori (Dry seaweed)
Glass of water
Plastic glove (for hygiene reason (ฅ•.•ฅ)
Shape the rice using spoon. Make sure to use a spoon that already wet with water so the rice would not stick on the spoon and it will make easier to shape the rice.
Cut the Nori (dry seaweed) as seen in the video to make the top head, eyes & nose and the ears. Make sure the scissors is fully dry because water and dry seaweed it’s a big no-no.
For the ear part, you can use toothpick/pasta string to hold the ear. Use the toothpick and tomato sauce to draw a blush under the Mickey Mouse eye.
After decorating the head, plan neatly for the main dish, veggies and fruits.
